Glenfarclas 10 year old Review

By Miguel in Tasting , Glenfarclas

I should have posted all this stuff before Christmas because it was part of the Maverick’s Advent Calendar, but… I just drank the stuff… and wrote the tasting notes… and forget about it. Now that I have completely tasted them all I have to say that it has been a fantastic experience to discover new whiskies and to revisit old classics… like this Glenfarclas 10yo.

“A delicious nose that suffers because of a watered down experience... This stuff bottled at 46% should be glorious!”

Glenfarclas 10 year
Once upon a time, there was a whisky distillery in the Speyside managed by the same family for generations. And still is, Glenfarclas is one of the last family distilleries out there, in a world of shark-like giant enterprises.

This Glenfarclas 10 years old is a straw-gold , delicately light, sweet and malty dram leaving a long slightly spicy finish. Always impeccably well-made, this is a whisky that always delivers in quality.

If you like the Macallan, this single malt is something you shouldn't miss at all.

This dram has a gold-like color.

Nose (90): more than average. honey, sherry, spices, citrus, cinnamon, wood, nuts, tobacco, flowers.

Palate (87): light, smooth. honey, citrus, wood, spices, cinnamon, nuts, leather.

Finish (87): no finish. honey, citrus, spices.

So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Glenfarclas 10 year with 88 points over 100.

I really love this way of tasting whisky because you are “forced” to taste whiskies that you won’t be tasting on your own… I really prefer to drink a Glenfarclas 25 years old than the 10 years old… so I ended up never revisiting the low part of the range :)

You can still order your own Maverick’s #whiskyadvent calendar at Master of Malt.
